Do I need a new Handshake account for each school my company recruits with?

No! The beauty of Handshake is that it is a networked system. One account is all you need in order to be able to recruit at multiple campuses.

What does my trust score mean?

Your company profile will display an employer trust score. Your trust score helps to signify to both schools and students that your company is trustworthy. You can increase your trust score by being more active on Handshake and having a fully completed profile.

Why do I have to wait for approval to connect with some campuses while others approve my connection instantly?

Individual campuses have the option to create settings to auto-approve employers based on their trust score. That setting may impact how rapidly your company connection is set up.

Where can I see the jobs my company has posted?

From your employer homepage, click the tab on the left hand side that says “Jobs.” The jobs page will show all active, expired, declined, and not posted positions for your company.
